|Susan Sarandon & Richard Gere|
There have even been occasions when I've read a bad book and thought maybe it wouldn't be bad to have written that. After all, no one had to work at it. The writer didn't, the editor didn't. That doesn't happen often because I seldom finish a book I don't like. Life's too short.
But then there are times...
Yesterday, I was sewing, and I watched Shall We Dance for the many-eth time. I laughed, I lusted after Richard Gere, I wanted to look like Susan Sarandon, I wanted to dance like Jennifer Lopez, and then I cried a little, smiling at the same time. I did this when I was all by myself in the room.
And I felt great. I felt relaxed. I was happy. And that's my best reason of all. I wish I'd written Shall We Dance so that I could make people feel the way I felt yesterday afternoon.
